FM® 1000 is a modified polyamide-epoxy unsupported adhesive film and is especially developed for bonding metals, structural plastic laminates and various composite structural plastic sandwiches. FM® 1000 film adhesive is serviceable over a temperature range of -423°F to 200°F (-250°C to 95°C).
Primers are not generally required for use with FM® 1000 adhesives to increase strength; however, two primers are available for use where processing requires “tacking” of the FM ® 1000 film in place or for protection of clean details. BR® 1009-8 tack primer is used for room temperature tacking while BR® 1009-49 tack primer is used for “heat-tacking” at 175°F (80°C)
FM® 1000 film adhesive, with and without primer, has been tested extensively against the requirements of Federal Specification MMM-A-132. FM® 1000 has a typical cure cycle of 60 minutes at 340° +/- 10°F (170°C +/- 6°C) at 40 psi (0.28 MPa).
Typical applications for FM® 1000 include metal-to-metal bonding, composite-to-composite bonding, and composite structural plastic sandwich bonding.
